Inside Durkon's head

"Durkon": It’s just inconvenient all around.
- Panel 2
"Durkon": We’re slowing down.
- Panel 3
Vampire Durkon stands on the deck of the Mechane.
Roy (off-panel): See? Told you we could get you here.
Veldrina (off-panel): Thank you soooo much, Mr. Greenhilt!
- Panel 4
Roy: You’re welcome. Just put in a good word for us with your peers and we’ll be even.
Veldrina: Oh! I was planning on using several, but I’ll try to narrow it down.
- Panel 5
Veldrina: Exemplary? Magnanimous? Creditable?
"Durkon": Look, lad! Thar it be. This’ll all be o’er soon, aye.
Elan: Huh. We learned about Zenith Peak in bard camp, but I don’t remember anyone saying there was a temple on it.
Wrecan: The Godsmoot is held at a different place every time, so that structure is temporary.
- Panel 6
The Mechane approaches a round temple with flying buttresses that appears to be carved out of the living rock of the peak of the mountain.
Wrecan: They only built it this morning.
- The Order has been heading here since the events of #987 - The Soul of Discretion
- In the first panel, "Durkon" continues his complaints about mustaches from the end of the previous strip.
